The Federal Government on Monday directed all gyms, night clubs to be shut down till further notice as it rolled out measures to curtail further spread of COVID-19.
Besides, the Federal Government has also directed the reintroduction of a nationwide curfew from Midnight to 4.00 a.m.
The measures were spelt out by the National Incident Manager, Mukhtar Mohammed, at a press briefing of the Presidential Steering Committee on COVID-19 in Abuja.
He also said that gatherings of religious groups and weddings should not hold more than 50% of the capacity of the venues.
He also directed that official engagements, meetings, and conferences should continue to hold virtually.
The administration’s move is apparently directed at curtailing a spread of the COVID-19 virus during the forthcoming Islamic holiday on Wednesday and Thursday as it is feared that it could be an opportunity for Nigerians to contact the virus.
